Explain the racist and classist biases present in sanger’s work and the laughlin papers.

In a post of at least 1,000 words, please address the following questions: Margaret Sanger’s promotion of birth control is both a feminist argument and a eugenics one. Please explain both aspects. It is also a racial and class argument, much like the one made in the Harry Laughlin papers about immigrants from different places and native born Americans. Explain the racist and classist biases present in Sanger’s work and the Laughlin papers. In your paper, consider how something as powerfully positive as reproductive freedom can have its foundation in classism, racism, and the fear that the poor would “outbreed” the rich and “lesser stock” would take over the country.
